Your Question About Easy Weight Loss

Helen asks…

Can I be a dietitian without being a registered dietitian?

I would like to go back to school to become a dietitian but after doing some research with the ADA I have found that to become a registered dietitian I have to attend one of their CADE approved schools. The problem is that none of these schools are near where I live. If I get a degree in nutrition science can I still be a dietitian but just not a registered one or what are some other career options with that degree?

No, you must attend a CADE certified school and then get into an internship program. There are plent of CADE approved schools that offer degrees online though!

Mandy asks…

Is being a dietitian the only way to get involved in nutrition counseling?

Because I really don’t like how ADA (American Dietitian Association) focuses so much on physical science and western medicine, I just want to focus on the psy part of it and the application of nutrition in life, I could care less why things are the way they are. If not I can just pick something else which is ok.

weight loss cardiff answers:

Seems obvious, but a regular old medical doctor is where most of us get information/counseling.

John asks…

Do you think that seeing a dietitian will help you in your pregnancy?

I am 25 weeks and my midwife recommended that I go and see a dietitian, but did any of you see one. The way my MW is telling me to eat seems totally bogus. She is telling me no bread and yogurt and less fruit. Did seeing a dietitian actually help you all eat healthy during your pregnancies. Do you wish you would of seen one before you did, like a few weeks before. I do. Do they give you advice that helps you after you give birth?

weight loss cardiff answers:

I seen one… My husband is in the military and the hospital requires you to go see one…
I enjoyed going to see the dietitian because there were some things that I had been told to stay away from and she told me that I could have some of those things… One advantage for myself was that when I went home from the hospital, two days after delivering, you couldn’t tell that I had a baby. My weight dropped very quickly!
Yes… I had a follow up appointment with her and continued with a diet plan that made breast feeding easier.
